Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina) on Jun 9, 2014

Submitter does not have a specimen
EDRR Status: Local expert notified

Description of specimen

We saw an aggressive snapping turtle attempting to lay eggs on June 8, 2014. Upon disturbance, it hauled itself off northwards towards the nearby pond.

Commentary

It is unclear whether snapping turtles are considered invasive enough to warrant action so we did not capture it.
